Father / Daughter News
Posted on May 13th, 2017
To say the last few days have been heartbreaking and trying for us, as a community, would be an understatement. The allegations that have come out about PWR BTTM are unsettling and difficult to read and digest. We do not take this nor do we take any acts of violence lightly. Personally, this has brought up a lot for me as I have also experienced physical and verbal abuse by partners in the past. Victims and survivors need to be heard, considered and supported as opening up about such trauma is extremely difficult and emotionally taxing.
We have taken a few days to process, which allowed us to be emotionally available as sounding boards for all the other artists on the label. Father/Daughter is and always will be a community for artists to thrive and grow and their feelings are equally as valid and important as the two people who run the label. In lieu of the allegations, we are no longer selling PWR BTTM music and merchandise and we will be making donations to RAINN and the NCAVP in solidarity of all survivors.
If you ever feel unsafe, scared, or need someone to talk to, please call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 800-656-HOPE.

Atlanta's Art School Jocks have joined Father/Daughter to release their debut self-titled EP on June 2nd. Ecology Records will make an alternate version of the cassette coupled with a zine available locally in the Atlanta area and Jeff Rosenstock's online donation-based label Quote Unquote Records will have the EP available on their site. $1 from each sale of the Father/Daughter cassette will be donated to Meals on Wheels and ARC Southeast.
NPR All Songs Considered premiered the first single, "Just A Gwen" calling it "a great example of why Art School Jocks self-applied the description "existential basement pop," with its hooky melody and weighty subject matter." Listen to "Just A Gwen" HERE and pre-order the EP Cassette & Digital HERE.
